    0 - will not burn

    4 - extremely flammable

  • REACTIVITY - YELLOW

    0 - stable

    4 - may detonate

  • SPECIAL - WHITE

    water reactive, radioactive, oxidizer, acid, alkali, corrosive


Material safety data sheets msds l.jpg

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS(MSDS)

REFERENCE THAT DESCRIBES CHEMICAL’S CHARACTERICTICS & HAZARDS

MUST BE READILY AVAILABLE FOR EMPLOYEE REVIEW AT ALL TIMES THE EMPLOYEE IS IN THE WORKPLACE


Material safety data sheets msds16 l.jpg

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS(MSDS)
